Jarvis to coach at Florida Atlantic

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Florida Atlantic and Mike Jarvis finally have a deal.

After weeks of anticipation, the school announced Jarvis as the Owls' new coach. The job is his first coaching stint since St. John's fired him nearly five years ago.

Jarvis' four-year contract must be approved Wednesday by university trustees.

He replaces Rex Walters, who announced April 14 that he was leaving for San Francisco after two seasons.

Jarvis also coached at Boston University and George Washington. He has a 364-201 career record.
